Memorize: Inspirational Bible Verses For Children

(Scroll down for some verses and printable memory cards.)

You can’t be with your kids 24/7. God can. Help them memorize inspirational Bible verses for children, and they will carry God’s Word wherever they go.

We all want our children to form good habits, such as brushing their teeth, being polite, and doing their homework. But memorizing inspirational Bible verses should become a good habit, too. Teaching your kids this discipline is one of the greatest gifts you could give them.

Habits are powerful. The earlier you establish them, the better they’ll stick. For example, your mom probably taught you to brush your teeth when you were a young child. Once you’re an adult, how often do you forget to brush your teeth? It’s just part of your routine, isn’t it?

“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6; NKJV).

But how can you help your children incorporate scripture memorization into their daily routines? Allow me to share with you a few Bible memory tips.

Tip #1
Provide something visual to reinforce the overall idea of the Bible verse.

If you visit the Kids Talk About God Art Gallery, you’ll find dozens of ready-to-print memory cards containing Bible verses for children. A child artist illustrated each scripture. Because of this, each memory card has a built-in visual aid that is especially appealing and inspiring to children.

Tip #2
Let your children see YOU memorizing inspirational Bible verses.

Parents are the strongest role models in children’s lives. What they see you doing makes a huge impact on them. When your children are working on a memory verse, you can memorize the same one. Let them see you working on it. Print an extra memory card from the Kids Talk About God Art Gallery and post it on the fridge.

Tip #3
Help your children have repeated exposure to the Bible verse they’re memorizing.

Print some Bible verses for children from the Kids Talk About God Art Gallery. Slip one into your children’s lunchboxes so they can study their Bible verse while they eat.

Laminate and hole-punch a memory card, then attach it to one of those clips that kids like to put on their backpacks. You know they’ll see it frequently this way. They can even look at it while waiting for the school bus.

Tip #4
Be sure to pray for your children to not only be successful at memorizing each verse, but to understand it, apply it in their lives, and grow closer to the Lord Jesus Christ because of it.
